Never Enough Wool

NEWSLETTER

June 2014

Ah, June.  Summer is here, with all its attendant joys.  Sunshine, gardening, sailing, bike riding, gardening.  Let’s not forget all the quiet times in the morning and evening when those little summer projects are a joy in the hand.   Socks and dish cloths make great summer projects – small and portable.

Speaking of socks reminds me of Holiday Knitting.  My family “requires” hand-knit socks every year, as does Barb’s family.  This means that summer is a fabulous time to start working on them – you can be done by the time the holiday arrives.  We have a nice selection of sock yarns and patterns here at the store as well.  

Queensland
Remember the Queensland Sugar Rush from last summer?  It’s back, and we scored a new colour or two.  This is a beautiful yarn to work with and a delight to wear.  Need something delightful for a wee baby?  Look no further!
  

June is also the month for a YARN CRAWL!  Visit one or more of the five participating shops (Never Enough Wool, On the Lamb, Wool Queen, Wool on William, Soper Creek and Myrtle Station Wool) for great times, sales and fun.  The big day is Saturday, June 21st, beginning at 10:00 am, and running until the last store closes (around 5:00 pm). 

Tub
Don’t forget to let Barb and Carol know about your finished objects.  We are still counting until August 31, to see how many projects our community will finish.  Right now (May 30th), we are at 1,118.  The goal is 2,500 – and the prize?  Carol and Barb in a bathtub of wool on the cover of the 2015 N.E.W. calendar!


Knit in Public
will be celebrated Saturday, June 14th, here at the store.  We’ll have a pot-luck dinner (always good food!) and great conversation.  Weather permitting, we’ll move to a local park/picnic area, but let’s not tempt the weather people too early.

  
Finally, many members of our community participated in a surprise “grandma” baby shower for Carol last summer.  This summer, August 17th to be precise, Carol’s son, daughter-in-law and grandbaby will be hosting an open house  to celebrate Thales’ first birthday.  The event is at the Prince Albert Community Hall, from 2-4:00 pm.  Please let the store know if you plan to attend.  We’d hate to run short on goodies! 

Classes:

We attempt to keep our class fees at the lowest possible rates.  In order to do so, we ask that our students purchase their supplies here at the shop.  In addition, we offer class discounts to our students.  Please note that if you are not able to finish your project in the allotted time, you are welcome to continue attending the lesson times until you are finished.  

You must register for your class before class time.  Class times are generally Tuesday afternoon from 1-3:00 pm and Tuesday evening 7-9:00 pm.  Other times may be arranged to suit, but we will strive to hold classes primarily on Tuesdays.   Drop-in knitters are always welcome, space allowing. 

Crocodile Stitch BootiesCrocodile Stitch Booties – not just for kids!  This unique crochet slipper features an interesting texture around the top, and is absolutely adorable worked in Gradient from Schoppel, or Monsoon from James Brett.  Counting and gauge are important, so Barb will be a tough taskmaster.  These would be awesome holiday gifts for everyone on your list!  Class starts Thursday, June 5, at 1:00 pm or 7:00 pm.  Cost is $20 plus materials.

Cabled Vest – designed by Debbie Bliss, and frequently worn by Carol.  Join us as we work through the various cables in this vest with the result a stunning vest that can be worn as a layer, or as an individual piece.  Cost is $20 plus materials, and we will be starting June 3.

Great American Aran Afghan – This project will generally be meeting on the third Sunday of each month, providing there are no holidays on the specified weekend.  In deference to Father’s Day on June 15, we will be meeting on June 22, from 1-3:00 pm to work on our squares.

Entrelac Jacket – One of our customers brought in the book Entrelac by Rosemary Drysdale, and we spotted the beautiful Edwardian Cardigan on page 104.  Carol and Barb are still working on their cardigans, and welcome anyone else who wants to play along.  It’s never too late for entrelac!

Building Blocks – Michelle Hunter has created an afghan comprised of knitted squares, each designed to build your skills with needles, stitching, and assembly.  Our current class has just reached the half-way point as of April, and the students are enjoying it immensely.   This month we will meet on Sundays, June 8 and 22nd.   Class is currently filled – leave your name if you are interested and we will schedule a second series of classes. 

Building in Color – Michelle Hunter has done it again!  An afghan worked in multi-coloured techniques to expand your knitting horizons.  Classes will begin later in the fall, so be sure to let us know if you are interested.

Continuing Events:

Sit ‘n Stitch:  Every Wednesday afternoon, from 1 until 3.  Bring your latest project and join us for some stitching, questions answered, tea, and lots of laughter.  Everyone is welcome!  

Saturday Stitching:  Every Saturday, from 2 until 4.  What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than with friends both new and old, some handwork, and some tea?  

Knitting Night:  Every Thursday, from 7 until 9.  Although it’s called Knitting Night, crocheters are encouraged and welcomed.  There is plenty of friendship, tea, and yummy goodies for all.
